Power BI – Could not find file ‘C:\temp\AdventureWorks_Territories.csv’.

-> I opened a Power BI report and clicked on Refresh and got below error,

AW_Territories_Lookup – Could not find file ‘C:\temp\AdventureWorks_Territories.csv’.

-> I checked the file “C:\temp\AdventureWorks_Territories.csv”. It seems like someone have renamed the file to “C:\temp\AdventureWorks_Territories_AW.csv”.

-> One way to solve this issue is to rename the file from AdventureWorks_Territories_AW.csv to AdventureWorks_Territories.csv in location C:\temp.

-> In my case that was not possible as the team who changed it have used it on other reports.

-> Hence in my Power BI report, I clicked on “Transform data” and clicked on “Data source settings”.

-> I clicked on the file “C:\temp\AdventureWorks_Territories.csv” and clicked on “Change Source”.

-> Once the above changes are completed. Clicking refresh will just complete fine.

Thank You,
